I met Shelley at a photography course at few years ago, and since then we have become great friends, and recently business partners when we launched femme fatale boudoir. But it came as a big surprise, when she asked me to be one of her bridesmaids, alongside Candice, Chantelle and Ashleigh, for her wedding earlier this year at the beautiful Sante Hotel and Spa in Paarl.
I have always seen the role of a bridesmaid as very special, and believe that it is a huge honour being asked to be one. Its not just about wearing a pretty dress and having makeup done, it includes things like organising the bachelorette party, the kitchen tea, sorting out issues and lastly to support the bride when needed. Being Shelley's bridesmaid was an awesome experience, as she has the biggest heart, is super organised and everyone loves spending time with her.
Shelley is anything but ordinary, its why we all love her so much! She insisted on organising her own Kitchen Tea, which was a beautiful afternoon spent with a lovely group of ladies. There was a fabulous spread of yummy delights made by the team at Petit Fours in Northcliff. Shelley, thoughtful as ever, made sure we each got a beautiful gift from Yuppie Chef as a momento of the day, and true to her form, she had the camera out and was taking photos of the food before anyone was allowed to touch anything! I also couldnt resist taking my camera along, and here are a few photo's from the day.
Quirky and often described as rather eccentric, I am a lover of all things beautiful. Capturing special moments and making my clients look and feel beautiful is what makes me happy!
